I had to tinker a bit with the blink effect. It's how I learn how to do things.
I took the six frame animation, expanded it to 12, and changed eye color in between blinks. I didn't mess with the frame timing.
Needless to say, I had to figure out how to add colors into the color map, which I previously didn't know how to do, taking the colors present in the
left eye to use in the right eye. I also had to edit pixels at 800% zoom. I enhanced the size of the right eye a wee bit, as I wanted the effect to
stand out a bit more, making another row of pixels to add more color.
Overall, it needs more work, but the whole point was to figure out how to precisely overlay an animated avatar onto a background image.
Besides, I'm probably the only wolf avatar with multi-colored eyes that change color. Very unique.
